The Wonderful 101's superheroes form giant swords in new E3 trailer

Nintendo released a new trailer for its upcoming Wii U title The Wonderful 101 showcasing the various special attacks of the superheroes to fight off enemies.

The gameplay entails controlling a group of superheroes to fight off an alien invasion threat. At the command of the player, the superheroes can turn into giant forms such as "Unite Hand," where the team combines to form a giant shield-weilding hand and "Wonderize Blue" that will make the crew form a pulsing blue sword. Developed by Platinum Games, The Wonderful 101 was created under the direction of game director Hideki Kamiya.

The game will release on Sept. 15 in North America and will hit European consoles on Aug. 23 and in Japan Aug. 24. Nintendo showed off The Wonderful 101 this morning as part of its Nintendo Direct presentation.
